Rabobank Retains Its First-Place Position as Europe's Most Sustainable Bank
UTRECHT, Netherlands, Sept. 8, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- The Rabobank Group has retained its position as Europe's most sustainable bank. Rabobank has furthermore continued to hold the number-two position worldwide. These rankings are revealed by comparing the results of the Swiss Asset Management Group's biennial assessment of Rabobank with the results of the SAM 2005 Corporate Sustainability Assessment that were announced today. SAM is the leading international company performance assessment organisation in the field of sustainable enterprise. The agency assesses the Corporate Sustainability Performance of the companies listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) each year. Rabobank is a non-listed company and as such is not included in this index. Rabobank consequently requests SAM to provide a separate "rating" of its Corporate Sustainability Performance every two years. SAM employs the same criteria to assess Rabobank as it does for the DJSI companies.
